    1983 Don Mattingly Signed Game Worn Columbus Clippers Jersey. The question of Don Mattingly's Hall of Fame candidacy has been a heated topic of discussion in New York taverns and sports bars across the fruited plains ever since he hung up his spikes after fourteen big league seasons in 1995. While his Cooperstown case is mostly based on his offensive credentials which include single season highs of 238 hits, fifty-three doubles, 145 RBI and a .352 batting average, his fielding is often overlooked.

    Mattingly has the best career fielding average (.9959) of any player, ever, at any position, committing only four errors for every 1,000 chances. And his nine gold Glove Awards are the second most for first baseman.

    Selected by the New York Yankees in the nineteenth round of the 1979 amateur draft, Mattingly enjoyed a stellar minor league career capped by his 1983 effort with Columbus Clippers when recorded eight home runs, thirty-seven RBI and a .340 batting average in forty-three games. He joined the Yankees for good in July of 1983 and by 1985 he was the A.L. MVP.

    Here is Mattingly's 1983 Columbus Clippers game worn home white knit pinstripe pullover jersey, with two-button neck-line and red/white/blue trim around the collar and sleeve cuffs. The left chest displays a huge and gorgeous embroidered Clippers logo patch, while the back reports "19" in blue tackle twill. Desired heavy wear is exhibited with some nice staining and numeral separation on the back "1" which adds to the overall ethos of the exemplar which displays without any major distraction. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
